INTRODUCTORY INFORMATION

Hi! I am Amy. I am 23 years old, I live in Denton, Texas, and I work at a public library. I moved around a lot as a kid, so I have a major case of wanderlust that keeps me traveling. Besides my obsessive trip-planning, I devote huge amounts of time to reading, mostly kids' and young adult literature. I also like to write humorous essays about my experiences, and to walk. Not, like, for exercise or anything. Just to walk.

STORYTELLING INTERESTS

I feel like I've been telling stories my whole life. I was one of those kids who never stopped talking, who got distracted from one story and started another -- like Tristram Shandy. My parents were both amateur performers, so it seemed completely natural for me to follow in their footsteps, starting dance, theater, singing, and puppetry as soon as I could talk. The more I studied literature and realized the power of story in people's lives, the more I wanted to challenge myself and become a better teller.
 


MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

My next trip is to the Oregon coast this August with my mom; we're going to hunt for pirate treasure. If someone offered me a trip anywhere in the world, I'd love to travel around South America for a while.
